    Why limit yourself to just taking the hood off the last truck in the row when you can wreck them all in one go!

    The trailer in the first picture is for towers, not blades. The blade trailers do not have the extra jeep on the front, sometimes an extra axle, but not the whole jeep.

    that is not correct - I own a Temisko half schnabel tower trailer and the neck is completely different. It has no vertical hydraulics the expand to “clamp” the tower. This neck set up is built to use an adapter to hook to the front stand on a blade. Secondly, the dolly in the photo has a platform to set the rear or tip stand of blade. A tower trailer will be a basket that the tower rests in.

    see photos

    Also, The larger blades 67m and larger (I hauled 72 and 74m) are much heavier and are maxing out a 4 axle tractor. Temisko being a Canadian manufacturer and building for their market (big steer axles and non tridrive 4 axle tractors are generally not allowed out west) built the neck to allow a 3 axle tractor/ 2 axle Jeep configuration. This will allow them to go at minimum 40k/40k on the drives and Jeep everywhere and more in Canada. I have heard rumor of 80m blades on the near horizon.
